Said can use over counter considers anti itch creams and histamine a! Not working
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 month ago.

This is not the correct treatment

you need more aggressive meds

OTC steroids won't help

you need to see another dermatologist or better yet, an OB/GYN and get stronger meds

Usually clobetasol cream helps with this issue

Is this help?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Why OB/GYN? I do not any discharge or buring of vaginitis! The problem is on the sides of buttocks along the sides of tha rectum, not rectum itself! It is actuall on skin! What do you know about "pinworms"?
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 month ago.

I know alot about pinworms.

I thought you said it was near the vagina?
